The Outpost Fishing Reports

OP Report: Fishing is on Fire! – July 19, 2019

July 19, 2019 | 741 Views

Welcome to July

When we left you last, we had just finished off another amazing trip with Seth Fishman releasing a beautiful 34lber at Selvesson.  Since then the fishing has been on fire at both the Head and down south.  Returning guests have said this is the best start they have had in 20 years.  Tian Head, Selvesson and the Lighthouse has produced some of the best fishing I have seen since my start here 8 seasons ago

Starting off July we welcomed back Bruce and Tony from Delta group.

Chef Hawksworth made a spectacular dinner on the Wednesday with a Lamb dish that was unbelievably amazing.

We had a chance to go out with Willie Mitchell and do a little free diving and possible spear fishing. Willie was determined to get a Ling on the spear

As we said goodbye to Delta, we welcomed back former OP manager and long-time friend, Kenny B and family (and extended family) along with brother Chuck and father David, Ken brought along FIL Ian MacDonald for his first ever, salmon fishing experience.

Yes Ken brought his father in law fishing.  I set Ian up with the Butcher, and they wasted no time taking advantage of the perfect weather.

The weather was incredible for about a week straight, and all the guest were treated to some of the best fishing conditions of the season.

Dalan Garner caught this 31lber right in front of us at Selvesson.

I had the chance to fish with KB this trip again, and one afternoon we took Erin out for some fun at the Head.

Next up we welcomed back long-time guest and good friend Tony Adrian.  Tony brought friend Dick Welton and reunited with guide Clay from their days on the Salmon Seeker.

Dinner time!

And with Tony, the request for the always loved kelp wrapped salt baked salmon.

Salt bake is back!

New to the OP, was Jeff Lewis and his group.  After many trips to NIL, they decided to give Port Louis a try.  Again the weather and the fishing didn’t disappoint with truly the nicest weather weekend of the season.  Flat calm and sunny as we always say.

New to The Outpost is the Lewis group. Welcome!

With the derby on Geoff Aldous started the trip with 30lber on day 1.  Not to be out done, Damien Nicola caught and released a 33lber day 3 to take the largest salmon prize.

Even I managed to get out for a fish. We caught this 31lb beast at the head

July has been flying by, with crazy fishing and epic weather.

Check back soon for another report from Port Louis.

Cheers,
